I love working with my hands. This year I took on two handmade projects, one for each of my little kids. It was fun! I love creating something from nothing, and although I know they won't appreciate these handmade gifts as much as I would like them to , I know that they will love them.
Edith's gift from me is a handmade Waldorf doll. She is made of all cotton and stuffed with warm local organic wool stuffing and made almost completely by hand. I enjoyed making her so much, I am sure I will be making more in the future. I made her two little dresses, and I still need to fix her hair up a bit. She is a sweet little doll and in the end she really did end up reminding me of Edith, which is what I hoped for.
Porter's gift is a car mat; but not just any ordinary car mat, this is Radiator Springs! Oh yeah! I thought I was pretty clever to dream this one up! And I bet you didn't know that Radiator Springs has a Cabela's. I sure hope he gets many hours of play with this creation!
